a cheerleader and another monkey

Mckay came to hang out this year. It is always so fun to have him around; Xbox and all.
Some things to remember for future Halloweens:
"I want to wear a monkey suit like Jack!" (Lily)
"Sabrina, we are NOT going to be the lame family in the neighborhood and run out of candy. We need like 5 more bags."
Adam doubled over and me laughing so hard I cried at the replay of my attempt to play Halo.
And synonymous with Halloween: Britt's birthday. She doubled the long drive from CA to SG to visit us a few weeks ago. It was so neat to see her, Eleanor and Greg.
I love love love having company. Having excuses to cook and sit around doing nothing but talking is my kind of weekend!

last night

It was late, and I was tired. Adam wanted to contribute to the pumpkin carving contest at his work. (Unfortunately the StrongBad one he did with Lily a few weeks ago was too wrinkly.
We didn't get to bed until 11:30 p.m. Lily woke up at 3:00 a.m. wanting a drink of water.
And again at 3:30 a.m. and wanted to use the bathroom. I went in to get her and Jackson was awake. That never happens, so I got him out of his crib. He was covered in throw up.
So the nauseating smell, throwing up, crying, bottom wiping, laundry, diaper changing, discussions of what Jackson ate, etc etc took up the next hour.
I was putting new pajamas on Jackson and Adam put his hand on my arm and said "This is sure fun, huh?" And then he smiled.
And I smiled back and thought, it certainly is with you.

togetherness and other activities

Jack got his first haircut, so Lily had to follow suit:
We trimmed their locks to prepare for our family pictures out at Antelope Island. We saw a bison! It was super exciting - Adam took this picture of me immediately following his comments to "move over, he's walking towards you" - hence the worried eyebrows. We thought it was pretty funny (me after I was back in the car).

Mom and Dad were here and we took a little trip to Salt Lake to see Aunt Carol, who has the coolest piece of property ON THE PLANET (in my opinion). Just like when I was a little girl, Lily got to gather eggs with her 2nd? cousin Brooklyn, and Jack had fun watching (being mesmerized by) the chickens and playing in the sand.

Getting flu shots and suckers.

Macey's is our favorite place to shop cart-wise, followed by Smith's which has the little kid cart that Lily pushes around while I hand her food and she replies with "thanks!"

Adam is busy busy busy. It's nice having these two to keep me company.
